Allen® Hug-U-Vac® Steep Trend Positioner

#A-60001 (ST), #A-60005 (LG)

A new standard of care for steep Trendelenburg patient positioning.


The Allen Hug-U-Vac Steep Trend Positioners safely and comfortably hold patients in the steep Trendelenburg position. This positioning method is becoming more common, especially in robotic procedures. Setting up the patient ready for surgery is a quick and straight-forward process. Its unique pliable design enables it to conform to the patient’s entire supine anatomy to create a larger surface area to cradle the body firmly and securely in the steep Trendelenburg position. The Hug-U-Vac Positioners have integral quick-release straps that enable it to attach tightly to the rails of standard operating tables. The Large Hug-U-Vac Steep Trend Positioner has been to accommodate larger patients.
